Little Max in the Big Easy

Most times when folks visit New Orleans, they  head for gastronomical places like the Big 5 as I like to call them –Antoine’s, Brennan’s, Commander’s Palace, Galatoire's & K Paul’s … oh, I know there are so many more like Broussard’s, Emeril's, Arnaud’s, the Rib Room, any of Dickie B's, Jacques-Imo, as well as my favorite hautes like the the Gumbo Shop, Central, Maspero's and Red Fish Grill.

This time, our mini vacation was about our little Max as we decided on this trip we would not leave him alone in the hotel while we enjoyed any of the 4 or 5 star eateries mentioned above. Now, he did pick his favorite hotel, the Royal Orleans. I think he gets a kick from all the fuss the doorman makes over him and the fact that everyone knows his name. So our food ventures were a limited to dog-friendly establishments which by law means outdoors as in places that serve more food than alcohol and indoors for a few of the bars (yea). He also likes this hotel 'cause it's fairly close to Riverview Park with lots and lots of green space, a rarity in the French Quarter.

OKAY, let's get to the good stuff – READ MORE > »

    Aww you took Max on vacation, I love it!!!! It is so unfair that dogs can't go in restaurants in the U.S. like they can in Europe. Don't get the whole "they're so dirty" thing, esp when I look at some of the people these places let in … Your pup is a real cutie pie!!!
